How To: Remove Foul Odors in Your Freezer

Removing Foul Freezer Odors

Foul odors permeating from your freezer can ruin any appetite and cause fresh foods to become infected with horrible scents. Such unpleasant odors in your freezer may be the result of decaying, spoiled, or improperly stored odoriferous foods and may be difficult to remove.


  • To eliminate stubborn freezer odors first remove all food and items from your appliance.
  • Gently wipe down all surfaces with a non-toxic household cleaner and allow the inside of your freezer to dry.
  • Place a large, uncovered bowl of pure vanilla extract in your freezer.

Turn on the appliance and allow the vanilla to sit, undisturbed, for 2-3 days. Your freezer should now be fresh and ready for the storage of new foods.
